Cannot change my TV to allow my new DVD/VCr to work

I hooked up the new DVD/VCR unit and I cannot get any of the menu screens to show up. I called the manufactuer hot line and they verified I had done all the hook up correctly and I have power to the DVD/VCR player but they told me I need to swith my TV to Aux or game and I do not have those options on my remote control for the TV.

    I want to know if there is any way to use my current remote. If not, once I get a universal remote what will I need to do to get it to work?

  • mgilreath Oct 28, 2008

    There is no AV button on my remote. I already went through all of that with the tech support for the DVD/VCR. There is no AV or Game button on my remote.

You will need to go up to the tv and press the menu button and scroll down the list and see if you find the aux option or the game option in the cable-vcr-aux area under the menu. If you cannot do that or cannot find it under the menu, try changing the channel all the way up past 125 on the tv until it says input 1 or input 2. One of those should work.

Hi,

For starters, it would be to everybody's advantage to know:

  • the brand & model of your TV;
  • the brand & model of your Remote Control; and
  • the brand & model of your DVD/VCR;
  • and how the DVD/VCR is connected to the TV; yellow, red & white cables or a single patch cord.
For the moment, while playing either a known good disc or tape, you may want to try/check:
  • on the front control panel of the TV if there is a button for Audio/Video, A/V, Game or Aux;
  • on either the remote or the front panel control, if there is a button for SOURCE;
  • if the DVD/VCR is hooked up using a single patch cord, then try Channel 3 or 4;
  • try Channel 0.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Do you have an input button on the remote? possibly you need to hold down the menu button for an extending amount of time if it is in store mode.

If you could post a picture of the remote or what buttons that you can choose from, then I can tell you what you should try.

Sir, universal remote control is built for home appliances such as entertainment. if you will going to buy a universal remote control there is an instruction on how to use it. before you buy one just check the universal remote control list of brands and see if your tv or vcr brand are included to those list.

  • buy a universal remote control
  • check the lists of brand
  • input the code of your tv or dvd/vcr to the remote
it should work after that

thank you for using fixya

We just purchased a Samsung TV, and have been using a RCA DVD/VCR player/recorder, Model#: DRC8295N, Serial#: XXXXXXXXX We have Direct TV and before the new tv was using one of their DVR player/recorders....


The problem with your DVD/VCR is that when you hooked up your new TV you probably removed the power cord for the DVD/VCR during installing and running your new wires and such.

Your DVD/VCR has known problems in the power supply. This is very common. When unplugged, this allowed the capacitors to discharge and now wont work at all. It is very possible that if you left your DVD/VCR plugged into the AC wall socket it might begin to work after a couple of days. I wouldn't plan on it though.

Your DVD/VCR will need power supply repairs.The cost should be around $100 dollars.
if you would like one of our stores to repair this for you we would be happy.

please visit http:www.albiontvandcomputer.com
You can send us the unit and we can repair this for you and return in about a week.

Acessing Menu with universal remote


We used a One4All model URC3021BOO remote. We programmed BOTH the TV function and the DVD/vcr button with code 0807.  To access the menu PRESS TV then MENU button then DVD/VCR button will allow you to change menu functions using left and right and select buttons. *TV button will access Menu screen BUT NO menu functions. * DVD/VCR button will NOT access menu screen but WILL control menu functions if menu is already displayed. May work with other sharp products, or other universal remotes? These original (RRMCG1330PESA) remotes run 38.00+ to buy new so try this FIRST!

Hi,
I am not sure if you unplugged all the cables from your VCR to your TV, If so double check the hook up. When you unplugged the POWER to the VCR the memory was lost. Try and find the menu or set up on the remote. Again the audio out from the VCR needs to be hooked to the audio in on the TV and the video out from the VCR needs to be hooked up to the video in on the TV. Keep trying !!!

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo


With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

Can't get hooked up so it ALL works vcr, converter box, dvd...


If the DVD works through this "box". Things are looking alright. There must be a number of inpus or hookups to connect VCRs or DVDs or what ever to this "box" that then allow you to hook tp the TV.
If this is the case there has to be a way to swithc the box to the different things hooked to this box so that you can see& hear them.
I do not know what this box is, but can only guess you need to get the manual or more info on how it works.

If you can try to hook each one of your pieces seperately to the box.
First unhook the DVD that works, and hook the VCR. If works, unhook the VCR and hook up the the enxt piece. That way you'll know if each of them is working.

I'm trying to get my dvd recorder and vcr hooked up to my new flat screen tv. How do I connect them and what channel do I put my tv on (flatscreens don't have channel 3 or 4) to recognize the dvd recorder...


DVD players do not connect using regular cable connections Your flat screen TV should have separate Audio and Video connections. These are the connections that you should use to connect your VCR and DVD player. If you have a combo unit, that is a single unit that has both DVD and VHS in one box, you might be able to get your VCR to work on the cable connection. However your DVD will not be able to work as the cable connection doesn't allow enough information to pass through. If you go to your local Audio Video store and tell them what you want to connect they should have the cables you need for less than $10.00. Good luck.

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR


When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

Hook up vcr


Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.
